Description by OLDIES.com:
The General (1927, 105 mins.): Buster Keaton stars as Johnny Gray, a Southern railroad engineer who loves his train engine, The General, and a young woman, Annabelle Lee (Marion Mack). Deemed too important as an engineer to fight in the Civil War, Johnny is refused his enlistment. Not having been told the true reason for his rejection, Johnny feels dejected and Annabelle sees him as a coward, so she turns her back on him. Then, Northern spies steal The General with Annabelle along for the ride. Johnny must catch up to the train, beat the Yankees, and rescue his darling.
College (1927, 64 mins.): When Ronald (Buster Keaton), a scholarly young man who does not appreciate sports, arrives at college, he finds that all the Big Men on Campus are jocks. To impress a pretty coed, he tries to join every sports team - and fails them all. Sympathizing for the young man, a dean places Ronald on the varsity rowing team. Despite several clumsy moments, he manages to win the big race. This infuriates his athletic rival, who grabs the pretty coed and runs off with her. Racing to her rescue, Ronald has to repeat all of the sports he previously failed and tries to save the young lady from a terrible fate.
Parlor, Bedroom And Bath (1931, 75 mins.): Jeffrey Hayward (Reginald Denny) wants to marry Virginia, but she won't marry him until her older, hard-to-please sister Angelica gets married off first. Jeffrey then uses Reginald Irving (Buster Keaton), a dim-witted man he has just met, to pose as a suitable husband. Jeffrey must transform Reginald into a gentleman and a great lover to attract Angelica's interest. Poor Reginald ends up in one compromising situation after another.
